If you're being investigated or have been charged with a federal or white collar crime, it's imperative that you contact a skilled criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Federal and/or state prosecutors aggressively pursue these matters, and, if you're convicted, you could be looking at years of prison time and substantial fines. The accusations alone can ruin your reputation, and a guilty verdict can make it challenging for you to live your life as you once did – even after you have served your sentence.

In the U.S., both states and the federal government have enacted laws concerning prohibited behavior. Some criminal offenses are handled at the state level; others at the federal level. In some cases, they can be handled at both. But when is a crime considered a federal matter?
Typically, a federal crime is one that is committed on U.S. government property or crosses state lines. In many fraud cases, such as money counterfeiting, the federal government has jurisdiction.
Federal crimes are enforced and investigated by well-known agencies such as the FBI or IRS. They are prosecuted by a U.S. Attorney and tried in federal courts. Often, the conviction penalties are harsher than those imposed for crimes pursued at the state level.
Generally, a white collar crime is a non-violent offense that is carried out for financial gain. They are often committed against businesses and typically by someone entrusted with the company's assets.
Depending on the circumstances, white collar crimes could be handled at the state or federal level, or both.
